Hero of the Week 8/21/20 (SSNC Documentary)

Posted by Silver Spring Neighborhood Center - 2020-08-21 14:11:08

At the SSNC, one of the most important things we do is try to empower our youths. While we often focus on academic or employment programs, there's much more to it. We want to help create community leaders of tomorrow and part of that is giving a voice to the future of our community.

For today's Hero of the Week, we wanted you to hear directly from them instead of us. The following is a documentary 100% created by the young adults in our Youth Services Program, titled SSNC Youths Against Violence. We humbly hope you will be able to take a few minutes to listen and learn.

We want to thank all of our amazing young leaders who were either featured in this documentary, or involved in creating it. We appreciate them sharing their truths and are so thankful to have them as leaders for the next generation of our community. That's why they are our... HEROES OF THE WEEK!
